    Currently I'm nonlicensed in the state of PA. This winter I plan on getting licensed. However, I got to thinking about how I could land some spring fert/squirt accounts early. One idea I had was some local advertising to for aeration/overseeding/fertilizing and trying to sell for spring once I did some work for them. Has anybody else tried this or am I getting ahead of myself?

    Yes, I would say you got the cart before the horse. Not real sure for PA, but in Delaware, you have to have your applicators license before you can get your business pesticide license...it only makes sense.

    If you were to line up some accounts this fall or winter for next spring and you were unable to get your license for whatever reason, what would you do? Sub them out? Do them anyway and risk getting fined? These are only some of the questions you need to figure out first.

    Good luck

    One thing I forgot to mention...You will be fine for aeration and seeding, but you will need to be licensed for the fertilizing.
